Rick Ross credentials as a witness and criminal record were questioned in the case State of Arizona V. James Arthur Ray. The Court ruled that Rick Ross could testify, but the prosecution in the end didn't call him as a witness (undoubtedly because he would not have been credible given what the defense was prepared to put in front of the jury about Ross lack of education and criminal background).

Defendant's motion to disqualify Ross failed
The presiding judge of the James Arthur Ray criminal case ruled that Rick Alan Ross was qualified to provide expert testimony about large group awareness training, such as the seminars provided by Ray.
The Ray trial was quite long and some witnesses and experts were not called due to the length of the trial. To state otherwise is conjecture and an opinion not established fact.
Ray was ultimately convicted of felony negligent homicide and sentenced to jail time. Rick Alan Ross was officially retained as an expert consultant by Yavapai Country Attorney Sheila Polk.
